We originally booked for 2 nights and extended by a day! The location by the water is amazing. The rooms have a fantastic view and are very clean and comfortable. Rooms were sanitized adequately.
The staff were amazing. The wait staff at the restaurant were very courteous and bent over backwards to accommodate our requests. Our special thanks Mr. Devaraj for ensuring we had more than our share of jeep safaris!

Waterwoods has an amazing location right on the water. Their waterfront area is also very nice & flat. Being located right next to JLR, the safari's are very convenient.

They have very few rooms, so its cozy and nice for small groups. The rooms and bathrooms are very nice and airy with views of the water.

The food was good, the service impeccable. Dhanya (GM) and Raghu (safari driver) were extremely helpful and efficient.

Highly recommend staying at Waterwoods if you're planning Kabini trips.

After 9 years and my birthday coming up, my dear husband granted my wish and brought me to the wildlife wonders that Nagarhole has to offer. Not only is this resort located right by the kabini riverfront but just 500metres from the Jungle lodges resort which organizes all the wildlife safaris. From the moment we drove in, we were warmly greeted by the staff. At the reception area we met Chandru ( one of the most senior members of the resort) who escorted us to our tree deck room which I highly recommend to stay in just for the view, and organized all our safaris ( jeep and boat), a big thank you to him, he rightly predicted I would see A Tiger ( Our National pride) on my birthday, and our wish came true. Aside from the big cats, there were plenty others, if you wish to get a better sight of Elephants, the water safari would be ideal in the evenings. The food is very good too, quite a choice but mostly Indian cuisine. I want thank the staff at the dining area, housekeeping, pardon me if I do not remember your names, but they were amazing throughout our stay ,especially when arranging our bon fires by the riverfront Thank you Rohan Mishra for the dual Birthday Celebration, super special. Three Cheers to Waterwoods for making our holiday an ideal getaway.

Room tip: Rooms with a tree deck ( extended balcony)

We have been out on a tour after an year due to the COVID pandemic and the stay at waterwoods has certainly been a memorable one.

The property lies on the bank of Kabini river and next to the JLR one. However, the advantage of waterwoods is most of the rooms are river facing, while I don't think that's the case with JLR.
The rooms were neat and clean. We stayed in one room on the ground floor and one on the first floor. We could see the river from the bed in both the rooms which is a relaxing experience in itself.

The food was amazing. Both the taste and spread of their buffet lunch/dinner were way more than satisfactory. The buffet was closed due to COVID protocols and the staffs were serving the food on to the table. What else do you want?
They arrange for the bonfire too on the river bank in the evening. Cool breeze, starlit sky above and silence adds on the ambiance.

The staffs were very courteous and have been always seen wearing masks during our stay. They checked the body temperature too during checking in. There were sanitizers available at every corner of the property.

Finally, they help to arrange for both ground and river safaris which were run by JLR. You would get pick up/drop from/to the safari starting point.
The only disadvantage is you wouldn't get the gypsy for the road safari. People staying outside the JLR are given canter. But if you get a glimpse of the big cat or the black panther, you shouldn't complain too.
